Jean Blair, presents the team from Lloyds Banking Group with their award for Large Employer of the Year

The achievements of inspiring apprentices and employers were celebrated at the Scottish Apprenticeships Awards.
SQA is a proud supporter of the annual event, sponsoring the Large Employer of the Year award, which saw BT Plc, Lloyds Banking Group and; Scottish Sea Farms shortlisted for their outstanding commitment to their Apprenticeship schemes.
BT Plc were strong in their assertion that the fresh ideas and energy brought by apprentices have made a valuable contribution to the business, while Lloyds Banking Group were keen to stress the confidence their apprenticeship programme has inspired in the participants.
Scottish Sea Farms view the Apprenticeship programme as an entry point to a career in a sector which provides employment to many young people in some of Scotland’s more remote communities.

SQA were delighted to present the award to Lloyds Banking Plc, who were announced as the winners of the category at last night’s ceremony.
Jean Blair, SQA's Director of Operations, said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Large Employer of the Year award. We have heard about some of the great ways these employers have committed to the Apprenticeship programme, to the benefit of their business and employees. I'd like to congratulate all the finalists and in particular the category winner, Lloyds Banking Group, on their success."

A huge well done from SQA to all three nominees! Find our more about all the award winners here.
